Alyssa is arguably the most popular volleyball player in the country and her entry into the season is definitely exciting. We’re interested to see how she brings her competitive athletic spirit into the house. But this isn’t the first time she’s been in the PBB house. She was invited by Kuya to teach the housemates of the 2019 teen edition how to play volleyball.
Rookie musician and actor KD Estrada was revealed as the second celeb to join Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 Celebrity Edition. The show gave him the nickname “Ang Musical Wonder Boy Ng Paranaque.” KD is a newcomer to the industry and just recently signed with Star Magic.
